Filmed during subsequent Covid lockdowns in and around Govan, Icarus (after Amelia) is an exquisitely observed documentary exploring the often invisible work undertaken by women in Scottish communities. Beautifully captured on 35mm colour film, and drawing upon a diverse chorus of experiences, Salmon’s film is both a thoughtful investigation of female labour, and a tribute to the role played by women across Glasgow during the pandemic.
The film will be introduced with a short set of live music from Shea Martin and Jessie Moroney and will be followed by a Q&A with Margaret Salmon.
